KVP introduces Private Bill For Special Status in RS
New Delhi: Congress MP KVP Ramachander Rao moved a private bill in Rajya Sabha accusing the Central Government of ignoring the assurance for special status to Andhra Pradesh State.
KVP said that political parties which are winning elections and coming to power are ignoring the promises made by previous governments. If assurances which were given on the floor of the Parliament were not fulfilled it would defame the image of Parliamentary democracy, KVP said.
KVP in his bill added that any promises made by Council of Ministers including Prime Minister should be provided with a Constitutional Guarantee.
He remebered that Union Minister venkaiha Naidu, then in opposition, raised demand for 10 years Special status to AP state, which was not pursued by him after BJP came into power.
KVP got support from Telangana Congress member Rapolu Anand Bhaskar who said that special grant should be allotted for AP state along with Special category status so that hormonious atmosphere between these two Telugu states will be established.
